Any update on when power will be increased on ch 43? I would love to see Mets games with better picture quality as opposed to ch 15 on TWC. And while were on the subject, any chance of Games in HD being rebroadcasted on the digital channel?Reply by WEWB Chief Engineer Franco LaPietra on 1/14/05:
Hi and thanks for your questions:
1. No idea at this time when our autorization for full power will be approved by the FCC. We are at their mercy but expect that there will be some movement within the next few months.
2. The Mets telecasts are received from our sister station WPIX in NYC. At this time we are discussing the possiblility of delivering them in HD, but no decision has been made. Feel free to check back with me as we get closer to spring.Posted by Skaggs on 3/10/05:
How about an update about the increase in power and the possibility of Mets in HD? Since the dispute with TWC has pulled most of the games from the cable outlet, it would be a real treat to have the games in HD via OTA.Reply by WEWB Chief Engineer Franco LaPietra on 3/10/05:
Sorry to report that there is nothing to report......
The FCC has yet to act on our full power authorization. At this point I am reluctant to speculate on when they might act. We are truly a victim of the system and have no control over the process
Also, there are no plans to broadcast the Met's games in HD at this time.
